It is to bad. I just emailed the DNR on my disappointment in what happened with this course, how it went from a planned 24 holes down to 9. So much potential.

William Gilbert   January 5, 2016 at 11:02am

actually it was a planned 24 holes plus 9 handicap holes. not it is going to be hopefully 18 holes whichi includes the 6 handicap holes as part of the total 18 holes. concrete tees no idea. i would so love to see the course finished as planned but they do not have the time to work on it and we ar ... more

John Reifschneider   January 28, 2016 at 3:47pm

we worked 140 hours on it in 2014 leaving only 3 holes away from finished but the park pulled the plug with no discussion. They had a handful of trees left to clear and delayed it 9 months from there initial promise of them clearing the large trees with excuses they were short handed, their machine ... more

I checked out the course status the other day. The signs and basket sleeves for 10, 11 and 12 are in. More clearing is needed but these three holes will be better than the 9 that is already there, lots of elevation, etc.. What does not make sence is that 12 ends way in the back, not near the parking lot. Also, many more trees are marked for what seems to make a great continuous loop all the way to the parking lot. Anyone know the latest details / plans?

I am an Eagle Scout from troop 362. I am the person who last spoke with the DNR about the course. For my Knowledge, the plan was to make an 18 hole course that ended right across from the first hole, making two small loops. I am the scout who finalized the three holes; 10, 11, and 12. Last time i sp ... more

Devin Swanner   October 9, 2015 at 12:30pm

As mentioned before I finished the three holes you see now, I will get with my troop and see if we can get a scout to take on the 6 remaining holes or at least two scouts, 3 each scout, I know the troop is pasinate about disc golf and 90% of them disc golf. my vision was to see the course complete a ... more

Tony Rohrer   October 19, 2015 at 12:13pm

Devin, thanks for the update, sounds like we still have some hope to build on what is currently there. I am passionate to keep this course expansion going also, If I can help in anyway please let me know.

Corey Kieft    March 10, 2015 at 7:19pm

Is this course still 9 holes plus the ADA 6?

John Reifschneider   March 12, 2015 at 9:10pm

That's actually the worse part they are adding 3 holes with absolutely no discgolfer involvement while it would only take them completely the portion of the job they promised would be finished May last year. Now they think the ada 6 can be called actual holes, and 3 more poorly designed holes ... more

John Reifschneider   March 12, 2015 at 9:13pm

Tuning a 24 hole course that 12 holes are already carved and ready because they refuse to do the portion of the job they agreed. Now they won't complete the 30 hole course and take the poorly designed 9 and horrible 6 Ada holes and call it a course when the orginal 9 were always intended to be ... more

John Reifschneider   March 12, 2015 at 9:16pm

A total of 10 large DEAD trees need to be cleared they are 2-3 stories tall and they refuse to let us remove them as its a safety issue and promised in feb last year if we marked what needed to be cut they would cut it, we agreed to clear it, we did so many hours of work wasted weekends and there inability to complete there small portion killed a massive 100 acre expansion into beautiful land

We just recieved news that the course expansion will be delayed. Park Office: "Currently the field office will be out within the next two weeks or so, due to an unexpected delay related to the repair of a sink hole."

We hope to be back on track in a few weeks and with hope baskets in the ground before the end of June.


Matthew Roberts    May 3, 2014 at 10:40pm

We are looking for volunteers to help clear the fairways for the new expansion at Brighton Rec tomorrow. We will be at the park by 9 am
